Family at Meiji Jingu

Today is the day before Shichi-Go-San, a ritual and festival-day for three and seven year-old girls and three and five year-old boys.

Parents take their children, dressed in their most beautiful traditionial clothing, to their local shrine. In Tokyo-region they often are visiting Meiji-Jingu, too.

This is where we met this family which generously allowed me to take some photos of them.

(I’m still trying to put up a japanese translation. Please be patient)
